As part of Mana Badi Nadu Nedu in Phase-I Progamme painting was taken up in all the Schools as part of the 10 components of the programme. Several complaints, reports and feedback from the Inspecting Officers and reports from Nadu Nedu PMU reveal that painting done in some Nadu Nedu Schools is peeling off as several instances of the painting being done without proper surface preparation such as Scraping and High pressure cleaning has come to light.


At few places, the quality of Painting is not up to the mark and there is visible deterioration in the form of peeling, blotches on the surface and fading, the painting quality will not be able to hold up for the guarantee period of 7 years given by the Painting Companies.


These issues were discussed in detail in the review meeting with the  Paint companies and the following decisions are taken:

Starting from 10.01.2023, the two Painting Companies Berger and Asian Paints will visit all the Schools, Painted by them under Phase-I and identify the Schools where repainting of walls, rooms, doors and windows is required.


The concerned Head Master, Field Engineer (who supervised the work in Phase-I) and the company representative will go around the School and identify the areas to be repainted.


Once the areas are identified the companies shall take up painting and complete the same by end of February-2023. While taking up Painting if the existing wall arts, labels and sign boards are disturbed the same shall be repainted.


All the DEO’s / APC’s shall ensure that the Head Masters, Field Engineers  are available when the company representatives are inspecting the school premises.


The DEO’s / APC’s may please ensure that the Field Engineers who supervised the works in Phase-I shall supervise this activity personally and certify the rectification work along with the Head Master.


After doing the rectification the painting companies can take back the balance painting material stocked in the Schools.

On completion of the Painting work the Head Master, Field Engineer and the company will certify the quality of painting and sign the declaration confirming the quality of the painting, and the same will be uploaded to STMS.


After completion of certification by the Head Master and Field Engineer and the Company representative, Cross Audit will be taken up by sending special teams drawn from one District to another to inspect the quality of painting and re-certify the Painting quality.


Wherever Painting quality after rectification is also found to be poor, the cost would be recovered from the concerned staff and Field Engineers who have certified the painting..


All the DEO’s / APS’s are requested to ensure that the Head Masters are available during the identification of areas to be repainted and during the repainting work.
